In this session, you will hear a combination of the latest research as well as best and next practices from leading organizations on the role the learning & development staff is increasingly playing in the Integrated Talent Management movement. As a starting point, the group will discuss the top-level findings from ASTD's recently published report, Learning's Critical Role in Integrated Talent Management, including information on how high-performing and low-performing organizations use talent management differently.

Web 3.0 and the Transformation of Learning
Presentation by David Wentworth | Tuesday, May 24, 1:45 - 3:00, Room W 207 (Session TU222)

In this session, you will hear about how the learning profession defines Web 3.0 and how it envisions the incorporation of these technologies into the learning function. You'll learn about the degree to which high-performing organizations have already adopted Web 2.0 technologies into the learning function, their plans for Web 3.0 technologies, and how this is likely to play out in the future. The speakers will focus on three key components of Web 3.0: the Mobile Web, the Semantic or "Smart" Web, and the Immersive Web or "Immernet."
